Shuriken is the word given to traditional Japanese concealed hand weapons, generally used for throwing, stabbing, or slashing with their razor-sharp blades and multiple piercing points. Modern day throwing stars, ninja stars, etc., are most often made in this traditional Japanese design and have evolved to become even more fierce and effective. Whether you are a ninja, master knife thrower, or simply a beginner, these unique and exclusive throwing star designs will get your attention.

United Cutlery Black Ronin Twelve Point Throwing Star
This Twelve Point Throwing Star by Black Ronin™ features 12 razor-sharp edges and piercingly sharp points that will penetrate practically anything effortlessly. Whether being utilized for self defense or being hurled by a real ninja, this shuriken-style thrower means business. It is crafted of one solid piece of black-coated stainless steel with an aerodynamic cut-out in the center that allows this star to sail through the air with ease and accuracy. No matter what you’re throwing this thing at, it will prove effective! Slightly larger than some of our other throwing stars, the body of this thrower measures 4 1/2? across. Another convenient feature of this star is its nylon storage case. It’s both functional and protective, so you can transport the star easily and safely.

Where the previous throwing star offered an abundance of piercing points, each of these throwing stars, also by Black Ronin™, offers a more contemporary design with more curves and larger exposed blades. The razor-sharp blades will slash any target when you send this star spinning through the air. The all-stainless construction provides a solid, durable, but lightweight thrower, and at 3 1/2? across, this star is discreet but very effective. It includes a nylon storage pouch for safe, convenient, and concealed carry, making it a great personal defense item that would make any ninja proud.
